What is it?
A live Q & A video call, a small-group conversation (each call is limited to six participants).
Open to any and all art-related questions:
… be it about your art, or mine, or old masters’ art. Art history and philosophy. Art and consciousness. And art and/as life practice: from time management & planning to inspiration & spiritual underpinnings of creativity.
The conversation is open to all things Art…
… and even if you don’t have a specific question (which you think I could answer), but just a challenge you would like to tell me about and pick my brains in search of your solution, your path forward…
This is what the “Pick my brains/pick my eyes” calls are for.
How does it work?
Step 1: What would you like to talk about?
Simply respond to my letter with your question and/or challenge you would like to talk about (at least one week before the scheduled call). If your question/challenge is about your painting, please send a good photograph and be as specific as possible in describing what kind of feedback you are looking for.
- If you are one of the first six people to respond, I will send you the registration link for the upcoming call.
- If you are not one of these first six people, I will add your question to the waiting list. This means that you may be invited to the upcoming open call if anyone drops out, or you will be the first to receive the next announcement.
If you are not on my mailing list, and don’t receive my letters, please leave me your name and email address if you would like to participate:
Step 2. Show up
Show up on time, stay for the duration of the call, and be ready to be visible (on video).
It is a small-group conversation, and — at least in my experience — there is always a certain coherence between questions and themes that emerge in such conversations. And I will do my best to reveal this coherence, so the whole conversation may be relevant to your question/challenge.
Important: Please treat this call as a personal invitation to my home/studio (rather than a webinar or any online event of this kind), which means: if at any point after registering for the call you find you won’t be able to attend, please let me know as soon as possible.
Step 3. Listen and participate in the conversation
Be fully present to the conversation, and willing to co-create it: to participate in responding to other people’s challenges, and listen to whatever emerges.
The video recording of the call will be available for download (to participants only) for two-three days after the conversation.
The first “Pick my brains/pick my eyes” call is scheduled for Thursday, January 30, 4PM Pacific Time.
If this time slot doesn’t work for your schedule/time zone, but you would really like to participate in one of the future calls, please let me know your time constraints.
My current plan is to make this a monthly event (for 2020), but this is an experiment… which means I don’t really know how it is going to evolve.
And the last thing: this event is free. All you have to do is respond with your question promptly enough to be among the first six participants.
